GemHelper

Description

Search, filter and craft gems in the game!

For non-Jewelcrafters, GemHelper serves as a encyclopedia for gems much like what AtlasLoot Enhanced is for instance and reputation loot. With many search filters for the exact gem colours, stats and materials, users can quickly find the best gem to socket into their new equipment without having to harass a Jewelcrafter or check a website about what gems are available.

For Jewelcrafters, GemHelper goes a step further and allows users to craft gems directly from the GemHelper UI with extra options such as "Have Materials" that Enchanters currently have. Jewelcrafters are also able to replace the default Blizzard Jewelcrafting UI.

The gem tooltips will list the materials needed to craft it or the location where the gem can be found/purchased. Currently, the database contains 565 gems. All gems should be (more or less) safe to query the server for (the link) because if someone has the gem on the server (in inventory, bank or socketted in gear) and has logged on since the last server reboot, it will be safe to query.

To use GemHelper, type /gh or /gemhelper ingame. If you are a Jewelcrafter, you open the GemHelper window by pressing the Jewelcrafting button on your actionbar or spellbook.

This addon can be used along with CraftList2, ATSW, Skillet.

Quirks

If you open the GemHelper window via the slash command (/gh or /gemhelper), you will not be able to craft gems from it. You must open the GemHelper window via the Jewelcrafting button on your actionbars/spellbook. This is NOT a bug and is a limitation of the WoW game engine.

What I need

Localization information for various languages:
With the changes before Cataclysm was released many gems got renamed, new names introduced, some removed, etc. I'm unable to accurately update the existing non-English translations of GemHelper. I have enabled the Localization pages for everyone who can, to submit translations to be used for GemHelper.
Also, please review this ticket and post whatever information you can on non-English name structures. Thanks.

    GemHelper 6.? versions will start appearing soon.  GemHelper 6.? is to be used with World of Warcraft 6.0 (Warlords of Draenor) beta servers.

    Continue to use GemHelper 5.4.? versions for Mists of Pandaria servers.  Running GemHelper 6.? on Mists of Pandaria servers may not work.

    What needs to be updated?

    If you're referring to the issue reported here then I'm aware that it exists. If there is something else wrong, please create a ticket with the details.

    I am away from home on vacation and won't be back until next week.

    Just an FYI, GemHelper versions 4.3.28 and r174 are the last working versions for World of Warcraft 4.3.x (Cataclysm).

    All versions newer are intended to be used on the new beta World of Warcraft 5.0 Mists of Pandaria and may display errors if used on the current live servers.

    Thanks, Tiker! I'll forward the link to my guildies and I'll get to testing it myself!

    That would be cool, Tiker! I just read your reply to a guildie and he said that would be great!

    The titan panel GemHelper mod was actually done by someone else and was never part of the main GemHelper mod.

    The mod on WOWInterface says it's only maintained on curse.com now but the link is now invalid so I don't think it's maintained any more.

    I should be able to put together a quick little broker mod for GemHelper if you want.

    Has the broker functionality been changed or removed? I used to have this on my Titan Panel and now it's not showing up in my list of plugins. Just wondering....
